Andrew Goddard, as usual, quickly, eruditely, intelligently, and concisely parries the attempts at a meaningful salvo from certain progressive elements in Anglican life. This time the 'attack' ads against the Covenant, being mounted in English church newspapers by a couple of groups uniting together for common anti-Covenant purpose, are repelled. Here is a flavour:
"Two of the Church of England groups most associated with an appeal to reason have demonstrated themselves to be incapable of reasoned argument. They have also revealed themselves so hermeneutically challenged when faced with a relatively simple and short text whose contemporary context is well known that, did I not know some of the groups’ leaders, I would conclude they were deliberately misrepresenting the situation and framing false charges just in order to rally their troops and engender fear in those relatively uninformed of the covenant’s background and content."
As you can see, no prisoners will be taken in this counter-raid. The attackers, Goddard is saying, are firing loud and noisy ... blanks! The whole post is here.
